A vocational reflection program for incoming freshmen
Furman University's Cothran Center for Vocational Reflection is offering a fun and inspiring nine-day residential program for incoming freshmen like you!
Each summer, we gather a group of thoughtful, mature, and open-minded students who are willing to be stretched beyond their individual comfort zones. Guided by experienced Furman teachers and mentors and stimulated by new friends of different backgrounds, you will learn to be more appreciative of your own "life stories" as you discover through theology classes, journaling exercises, community service projects, and more that discernment of personal vocation yields authenticity and fulfillment.
The next Summer Connections program will be held June 20-28, 2019. Applications for next year's Summer Connections program will be available in early 2019.

[Note: The program is Christian in orientation, but nonsectarian. We welcome
participants of any faith perspective and tradition. No attempt is made
to indoctrinate or change the religious beliefs of students. Students
are offered ways to use their beliefs in discovery and analysis
of their individual life's goals and meanings.]
How much does it cost?
The program is offered at no cost to students accepted into program, thanks to support from generous donors.
